“Best hotel in best Tuscan town”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Wonderful hotel and staff in incredible san gimgnano.
2 couples stayed for 2 nights in July 2013 on our 16 day self guided tour of Italy, the hotel was clean and staff friendly, breakfast was also very good,
I highly recommend staying overnight as seeing the town after the day tours leave is wonderful,
The food and shopping are equally amazing.
This hotel is a wonderful base for exploring other town as Siena , then returning to have san gimignano to yourself in the evening.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

Good location almost in the centre of town. The rooms were large with original, antique decoration. Staff provided helpful information on the sights and good restaurant options. Breakfasts were ample.

My husband & I returned to one of our favorite places this September. We stayed a week in this lovely family owned hotel that is technically a Historical Residence. Tuscany is one of our favorite destinations & we use this hotel as our base.

Finding the hotel is very easy thanks to an excellent little video on the hotel website. The location of the hotel is almost in the centre of the small and amazingly beautiful San Gimignano. We booked a standard room. When we first checked in we were given room 32 which was really dark having only one tiny window that looked out to an alley, and no window in the tiny bathroom, we asked to be moved and this was no problem the very helpful lady on reception gave us keys to 2 other rooms for us to view. Room 21 on the second floor high ceiling but quite cramped and room 34 which was the same size but had massive windows in both the bedroom and bathroom, which is the one we chose. There was a really strong smell of cheap air freshener and we discovered it was the spare toilet roll, put it outside the door and smell dissipated. Rooms are clean but very basic and beds are very hard. Breakfast was average, there is a lift in the hotel. Parking is outside the town walls a short walk from the hotel and worked out about €15 a night parking at 6pm and leaving at 9pm, 8-8 is €5. As stated before the location is amazing and that is what you are paying for. Fine hotel for 1 or 2 nights....

Room Tip: Room 34 was fine with big windows looking out to houses and town wall and gardens at back of hotel

Thank you for your review and appreciation for the great location of L'Antico Pozzo for a pleasant holiday in San Gimignano and we are happy you enjoyed your stay and our service!

Just for information purposes your reservation was for a small room type:
we have 3 room types available, small,standard, superior and we are glad we had the possibility to let you choose the preferred one.

I regret we had not the opportunity to assist you to improve your bed comfort: our anatomic-orthopedic mattresses guarantee excellent ergonomic support and are appreciated by many of our Guest, however our staff is available 24/24 to provide extra lattex-pads which make the mattress much softer according to Guest' sleeping habits.

I also would like to say that our breakfast buffet is various and rich and would appreciate any suggestion and more detailed feedback about it which may help to improve our service.

We look forward to welcome you again at L'Antico Pozzo

We just returned from a 2-week trip to Italy. There were 11 ladies all with differing taste. All of us LOVED this hotel! The location, room size, and views were amazing. The staff was especially amazing. Everybody was helpful. The breakfast was big and healthy for all likes and tastes. I highly recommend this hotel if you want to visit the heart of Tuscany!

Room Tip: It was fun to watch the people from the window on the street side.

Great hotel right in the middle of San Gimignano. Although parking is not available - you need to park in one of the carparks on the edge of town and then work your way in. Very convenient for when the tour groups leave in the evening. Helpful owners. Good breakfast. Inexpensive.
